German TV viewers have had a crash course in Welsh placenames thanks to a programme focusing on Rhosygilwen mansion.

Presenter Christian Dassel and a camera crew from the programme Bustour met with poet in residence Diarmud Johnson who speaks fluent German.

Diarmud gave Christian a quick guide in Welsh pronunciation as well as explaining his role at Rhoysgilwen.

The programme also includes some stunning footage of West Wales scenery.

Rhosygilwen owner Glen Peters said: "We're hoping to get a group of German visitors for our Schubert festival in October from the slot. Now the Bard has got more attention in Germany than in Wales."
